City on Barker:

Winner of the Academy Players’ Player of the Year award in the 2013/14 campaign, Brandon Barker enjoyed an explosive season as a first year scholar.

A winger with frightening pace, able to beat defenders with an accurate cross from wide areas or cutting inside, Manchester-born Brandon scored 13 goals in 32 appearances for the u18s last season.

Now 17, he made his debut for City u18s while still eligible to play for the u15s, represented the EDS while on preseason tour in 2013 and went on to test himself against players up to two years older than himself as part of the u19 UEFA Youth League squad.

Dazzling form at club level was rewarded in September 2013 with a first call up to the England u18 squad, and the winger has since been a regular name for the Young Lions.

A City Academy player since the age of eight, Brandon signed a pro contract with the club in July 2014.
